Park of Kiryat Yoel: Blue for boys, red for girls • view

A huge Children Park was established in Monroe, under the supervision of the Satmar Rebbe and divided into four zones • Facilities for boys have been colored blue while girls play with red facilities

It seems one can justly tie the crown of 'world's largest haredi children's park' to the new children established in Kiryat Yoel in Monroe, an area of 283 acres, in which there will be full separation between the boys' compound to girls' compound.

The park, built on the outskirts of the city, was built by Kiryat Yoel, with special financing obtained by Mayor Rabbi Abraham Wieder. Even such a trivial issue, the mayor and his fellow council members consulted the Satmar Rebbe, by whom all the affairs of the city are decided, and according to his guidance the plan was outlined.

Municipal treasurer, Rabbi Gedalia Segdin, describes the park, which is under the supervision of the Committee of modesty by Kiryat Yoel and under the watchful guidance of the Rebbe: "The park is divided basically into four sections. The first part is bounded for boys only. Facilities were produced in blue, to identify them very clearly with this group. Another part is for girls, with red painted installations. In this was there will be no confusion between the compounds. Two other compounds are intended for young children, children up to age five. One is designed for fathers who come with their children. The second is designed for mothers who come with their children. The different locations are separated by hills, which actually form a modesty buffer and allow the place to remain completely pure."

City leaders were not satisfied with the facilities for children. They invested in nurturing it in terms of landscape. Within the park two special trails were paved to walk calmly along two rivers that cross the park. In addition a special place was reserved for the gym, for those who need it. Foreigners who do not belong to the Orthodox stream, are not allowed to work out and the site is reserved for locals only.

"It is time that the city which was founded according to the regulations and directives of the Rebbe the Divrei Yoel of Satmar zt"l, will enjoy a magnificent and giant park for the welfare of the residents alongside insistence on the essential spiritual aspects," say the leaders of Kiryat Yoel.
